Emma Mine to Resume   ^^^^s^sa^a^^^^^^^
"The Emma mine of the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co.
will resume operations about the
middle of the month with a force
of about 50 men. This information was given The Gazette, Grand
Forks, last Thursday by B- M.
Macaulay, who had reached the
city from Trail en route to the
mine to recruit the mine force and
get the property on the shipping
list again. ~;
The Emma Bhips its output to
Trail smelter and closed down laBt
March at the same time shipments
of ore from the Rossland mines to
Trail were discontinued. The ore
from the Emma works in with ores
from Rossland as a flux at the
smelter, and now that shipments
are being resumed at Rossland the
Emma is to be resumed.
The Emma formerly shipped
about,six cars of ore weekly and,
according to Mr. Macaulay, resumption will be on the same basis
and' he expects that shipments will
be continuous.''

After a time she stood up and moving softly across the room touched a
match to the kindling in the grate.
Dannie had settled down upon a rush
. mat just outside thc door. She smiled as she heard thc regular breathing
that assured her that hc was sleeping
She reached for the dried venison
hanging from thc rafter, and sliced
sonic of thc meat into a big frying-
pan. Shc filled thc kettle with water
and slung it into the crane above the
leaping fire, then sat down to wait
until thc kettle boiled, her eyes on
Dannie's  upturned  face.
The light had drawn thc whining-
mosquitos from the thickets outside.
She tiptoed over and placed a piece
of cheese-cloth ovcr the boy's facc
to protect it from thc stinging bites
Then she went out and gathered a
handful of twigs. Thesc shc placed
before the open door and set fire to
them, throwing a handful or two .of
damp chips on thc blaze, as it leaped
up, to make thc dense smoks called
by the woods-people a "smudge," and
which acts as.a barrier to the troublesome swamp-flics.
When at length thc tea was steep-
. ed and  the venison  fried  to a  crisp
brown, she called Dannie.
Hc sat up immediately and rubbed
his eyes. "Plow long was I asleep,
Wilier?"  hc asked as he rose.
"Over an hour," shc replied, "you
ought  to  feel  better Dannie."
"I guess I needed a wink or two,"
said the lad; "I ain't been slcepin'
much  since���"
"Come on to supper," said Willow,
quickly; "you must be hungry."
"Wall, I be. An''it does seeiri good
to see you scttin' thar in your old
place ag'in, Wilier. All day I've
looked across an' found your place
empty an' his place  empty���"
"I'm not goin' back to Hardwoods
Retreat no more," said Willow as she
poured thc tea; "Not unless you'll
go, too,' shc added, as hc glanced up
with troubled eyes.
"You   must  go,   Wilier,"    frowned
thc boy.   "You simply must go.-  Dad
-wouldn't rest quiet if.he knowed you
an'   me.wasn't   doin'  jest  what  he's.
laid out' wc would;  no,  Wilier,- you
- must go back.--  I'll be-all right here
.   now, by.mysclf."
}   He took his scat at the table ahd
fell   to   on- the    appetizing    venison
with a zest born of long fasting.
' . Silence  fell - between   them."      The
firelight  danced  and painted    ruddy
pictures on the. smoke-blackened- rafters; the srnoke of the'-smudge drift-'
" ed -up,  in. pungent,.. fragrant'   puffs.
'. Par off,    somewhere,' .a.   nighthawk

" Willow, her.' elbows.'on .the table
and her chin in her" hands,..was gazing
deep into  the-shooting.flame of the
- fire. Watching "her,' the" boy became-
awarc for the. first time that she had
changed; what the change.' was   "hc

"It's all right, Dannie," shc said
quietly; "I reckon when I tell him
that I love, him, he'll be glad." .
Thc boy knit his brows in a frown.
"Do you. think that's jest the', thing
to do, Wilier?" he asked perplexedly.
She looked at    him . -wondcring!y.
"Why not?" shc asked /simply.'/,
;.���:''   -"I-.don't  know/":I' was -thinkin'���
but ��� I guess maybe, arter all, it's
best you should tell him. He's damn
square, Dorkin is."
"Yes, he's damn square," she repeated .gently. "He's good, Dannie,
he's strong���he's everythingl"
"That's so/'. The lad sat down
on a "stool and gazed thoughtfully into the fire. Silence fell between them.
At length Dannie spoke, hesitatingly.
"Have you ever thort that there
might be somebody else?" he asked���
some other gal, I mean," as her eyes
flashed a quick question.
She looked at him dumbly, her face
going" white. Then she stood up,
gripping the rough boards -of-the table in her strong brown hands.
"No," she whispered, "I never thort
of that. But���but there isn't no other
gal. There can't, there can't!" She
almost shrieked the words and fell
back into her scat, arms thrown
across thc tabic and head drooped upon them.
He reached out and clasped onc of
the clenched hands in his own.
"There, there," he said soothingly,
"o' course there can't. It's mighty
foolish to think of scch a thing. Jest
forget what I said, Wilier. It's all
right.    It's bound to bc all right."
Shc lifted a wan face and smiled
bravely. "We're mates, him an' mc,"
shc said softly; "up here in thc big
woods, we're mates, jest as sure as
the stars are in the sky. Oh, don't
you understand, Dannie? He's mine,
mine, all mine; there can't bc no
other  gal!    There  can't!"
"No, Wilier," he consoled, patting
her hands; "there jest can't. Hc or^-
tcr be right glad."
Hc stood up and reached for the
water-bucket. "I'll go on down to
the spring an' get a pail o' fresh
water," he said.
The girl rose and commenced to
clear thc tabic of the supper dishes.
"There's something I guess maybe
I ort to tell you, Wilier," said the
boy, aftcr he had returned and placed
thc bucket of water on thc bench.
"This artcrnoon, when I was out by
Dad's grave, somethin' happened
that's got me guessin'. Set down an'
I'll tell you what it was.
"You've hcerd, about that man Savage, who comes down from the
Post twice er three times a ycar to
buy pelts from the Dalton gang?
You've hecrd dad and me speak about him ��� he's crooked an' everybody
in these parts knows it, I guess. Well,
I've only seen him once er twice, but
I'm pretty sure I'd know him ag'in,
if I saw him, an' I'm real sure I
saw him today. I was sittin' out under the big oak, when this.feller Savage come up along thc trail. Hc was
decked out iri city clothes an- when
hc sees ine he don't lei: on. I wanted
,to stop him an' ast.him what scheme
lie an' that Abe Dalton was hatchin'
for-this comin'' season,-but I didn't.
I jest let him pass.' But he's up-to
some dirty work, all right." What do
do "you think, his game is; Wilier?" ,
"I don't know," said the. girl, slowly; ' "More - trouble' comin' likely.

Explore Northern.
Bureau of Labor Will Investigate the
Natural Resources of
The North
An exploration party for the northern part of thc province is thc first
step bcing taken by thc Saskatchewan
Bureau of labor and industries towards the development of thc natural
resources in the land of minerals and
waterways. Coal and perhaps one
or two other principal mineral deposits will bc thc principal objects of thc
Thc party, consisting of E. Pierce,
mines inspector; A. C. Garner, chief
land surveyor, and B. L. Thorne,
geologist, together with necessary
guides and cauoemen will, it is expected, travel to Lac La Rongc by
way of Montreal Lake and Montreal
River and then southwest into Wap-
awekka Lake and possibly the Moose
Lake country.
In making this announcement,
Hon. Chas. Dunning, minister in
charge of the bureau, stated that thc
party was being sent to secure certain definite information concerning
thc country, its timber and mineral
resources. "Thc trip or route is not
by any means a new one," said Mr.
Dunning, "it has been travelled by
prospectors, trappers, geologists, and
mining nien a great many times during the last few ycars, with the result
that, a great deal of-information is
now available concerning the country
arid its resources. - But it would seem
that with ��� the .'exception of-a water
power survey, no definite or complete'
information is available as..to any
particular resource. The reports of
former expeditions contain general
references to a 'great riiany features
such ns 'soil, weather,'timber, minerals and :gamc, biit" what wc desire
to obtain is complete, and' authentic
reports on one ortwo^nain features.-
"For instance," continued Mr. Dunning, "wc have numerous references
in . "geographical "reports, interviews
.with trappers arid prospectors," -of

Pure Drinking Water
Commission of Conservation is Conducting Valuable
��     Work
A provincial officer of the largest
agricultural college in Canada has
stated that some farmers who'have
gone past his institution for a lifetime are still farming after the methods pf their fathers. Progress will
be very slow until actual demonstration of the profitableness of the iriv
proyed dairy cow, of the spraying of
fruit trees and of selecting seed, is
driven home to the farmer on his own
farm or to a local group of farmers.
Thc problem is, for instance, to convince the dairyman, whose herd produces only 3,000 pounds of milk per
cow pcr ycar, that, through selection,
it may ,in a few years, be producing
10,000. pounds and that without any
additional labor.
In 1912, the Commission of Conservation, realizing that thc most effective results could be secured only
by taking tlie instruction in improved
methods of farming direct to the farmer, initiated illustration farms all
through Canada. These were conducted under thc direction of thc
lands committee of the commission
for four years, when, having demonstrated-their usefulness and the advisability of increasing, their number,
the work was transferred to the Department of agriculture.
In the house of commons on May
14, Hon. Dr. Tolmic, minister of agriculture, in answering a question as to
the extension of the system of illustration farms into Cape Breton, said:
"These illustration farms .arc doing
excellent work. An illustration farm
is operated under thc management of
an ordinary farmer, who is selected
on account of his ability, and the
suitability of his farm' for the purpose.
He works-under thc direction of our
experimental farm branch, he carries
on the best system of rotation; he
uses-nothing but the best seed, and
the farmers of his neighborhood have
an opportunity of profiting by the
work that is carried on."
The Commission of Conservation
is conducting community illustration
.work in the County of Dundas, Ont.,
and the work has been carried on
for four ycars, and some outstanding
results have been secured, not only
in crop increases and better farming
methods, but in an improvement in
ed^lcation and opportunities for -. recreation and the development of social life throughout the County.

Wonderful Development of the Premier Province of Western
Nothing is more typical of the
progress of Canada and the spirit
that has made that progress possible
than the growth and development of
Manitoba in thc first fifty years of
its life as a province, the conclusion
of which period was celebrated in
Winnipeg on July 15. #The "postage
stamp province" of a half a century
ago-is today one of the richest, most
progressive and most promising provinces .in the Dominion. Its capital
is one -of the first cities of the county
Of course Manitoba was bound to
prosper. I/he..eastern enci 0f tiie grcat
fertile plains of Canada, it was the
gateway to the world's last great
west. Its position in thc industrial,
commercial and agricultural development of Canada is strategical. And
it^contains, itself, somc of the finest
farming lands in the world. But, with
all its promise fifty ycars ago, -who
would haye thought that today if
would bc putting the finishing touches to a nine million dollar parliament
building, said to bc the equal of anything in modern classical architecture
in North America?
One cannot compare the Manitoba
of today with the Red River Settlement of fifty ycars ago without giving tribute to thc dauntless courage
and, the wonderful foresight of those
who laid the foundation for the rich
province that has just celebrated its
anniversary.���Ottawa Journal.

English Oak MostN Durable
Specimen Perfectly Sound and Strong
After-500 Years
The durability of English oak is
the greatest of any known forest timber, discoveries have been made that
it is preserved almost as well under
water through centuries as it is when
shielded by roofs in ancient castles.
Prof. Burnett, of London, possessed a piece of English oak from King
John's palace at Eltham, perfectly
sound and strong,' which can be
traced back for more than 500 years.
Thc oaken shrine of Edward the
Confessor is more than 800 years old.
One of the oaken coronation chairs
in Westminster Abbey has been there
for morc than five centuries.
In .Gloucester Cathedral there are
31-stalls of rich-tabernacle, work ex-
ecutcdin oak in the.reigri of Edward
III... and beautifully perfect. When
the. foundations of the p.ld Sav>��y palace, in London/ built 700 years .previously,, were torn down, the piles,
many of which' were/of- oak,- were
found in a state of. perfect soundness.
A vessel," found in'the "River Rother
in Kent, said to date back to the time
of King-Alfred, was found "to, be
.'sound, despite the- fact that its^oaken
kec.l had been buried in the mud. An

As Well As Here.
A Parisian housekeeper 'vvho had
long been without a servant succeeded the other day in engaging one
who seemed very promising indeed,
says the Continental edition of , the
'London Mail. She entered upon her
duties-in the morning, and workcd.to
her mistress' complete satisfaction.
An early dinner was cooked and served excellently, but at 8:30 the new
maid appeared in the drawing-room
with her hat on, and explained that
she had to'go out, as she was in the
chorus at a ���'������music-hall and was sure
to be fined if she arrived late. Ap-
parcntly she was quite, prepared to
continue, her two jobs without regarding them as incongruous. Owing
to a lack of modernity in the mistress' ideas, this interesting experiment was not continued.

Crop Average and Crop Yield
Addressing thc Canadian Club of
Regina during the week of the Provincial Exhibition, Dr. Tolmic, the
Dominion minister of agriculture,
laid emphasis upon the fact that, despite a steady and really -large increase in" acreage under cultivation in
Canada - during thc last ten ycars,
there 'had been a marked falling off
..in'.yield per acre, with the" result that
the farm production of the country
had'not grown iu volume to the extent  that might have been .expected
,-. from1 the increase in acreage, placed
in crop.        -..���..��� . ��� ''>;
- Commenting on this disappointing
result the.Fcdcral minister of agriculture said: "An increase of three bushels to the acre in the production of
"wheat in Canada would mean an an-
nualincrease of ovcr $118,00,000, and
over $500,000,000 could be added to
the wealth of the country every year
if > the . farmers would exercise more
intelligence and enterprise    in    their
"agricultural operations."
.These are startling figures even/jn
this age when we have become accustomed to" reckoning things in the
millions: of dollars. And Dr. Tolmie
was speaking by the book; the official statistics of Dominion and provincial governments bear out the assertions hc made.'
��� It is assuredly in the interest, nrft
only of- the country as a.-whole, but
in.the interest of the individual farmer, that the causes of this decline in.
yield per acre should be ascertained
, and steps taken to check its further
progress and lo bring about a steady
increase in yield.    There is far more
TmbneyrariTa infinitely'larger profits, in
increasing thc yield per acre' than in
largely increasing thc number of
acres in crop which produce a comparatively small yield.
Dr. Tolmic suggested certain .re-
medics. First, a large increase in
yield can be obtained from a'more,
general use of good seed.' Second, an.
intelligent rotation of crops will inevitably produce larger yields. Third,
thc introduction of more' live- stock
on  thc  farm  will  tend  to  the  same
'-much desired - end;
There arc  other points whiclvDr.
��� Tolmic did riot d\yeil upon, but which
must suggest themselves' to'-any-person -.journeying through, the grain
fields of thc West. - and . along our
country roads.' ' First and foremost
there is the question of^wceds.Western  farmers  spend - huge . sums .of
^IPiyiPX MUl^ily_;_in. _Jiail __._insurancc
premiums, ��� but' the - annual' loss from
���hail, is but small in comparison' with
the annual loss"' resulting from the.
decreased yield because of; .weeds.
Thousands of dollars are spent annually in'fighting/the gophers, and" in
Manitoba and Saskatchewan this ycar
hundreds of thousands of dollars have
been expended in the effort to overcome the grasshoppers. And it has
all been money well" spent. But-year
after year weeds take, a. greater-toll
than these pcsts"without.ha!f the excitement' or effort, to eradicate, them
arid stop the loss. -. --'"-' ���'. ���''"- ..;';
., In    many/directions'   government
-' and- farmers', organizations" arc, striving to imprdve th^} condition and "advance the prosperity of the farmers,
.but thousands of farmcrs^are themselves-neglecting a matter thc control-
of which is in tlicir. own hands. They
are growing, weeds instead of-'wheat,
'oats, barley and -flax;';- Where there
is an." abundant-crop of-weeds'-there
cannot be a.-hcavy- yield   'of- grain.
Sooner or later the whole of Western
Canada will have'to bestir-itself in
connection with the weed problem,
and the sooner the better for "all concerned, and the cheaper in the.long
run. Public opinion on tlie question
is sadly asleep with the result that a
weed official who -proceeds to fearlessly do his duty quickly makes
himself- a mosT unpopular individual.
Another difficulty to be found is
the weakness of so many men to acquire more land. More acreage seems
to be their ambition rather than more
grain; They seem to be happier with
500'acres yielding 14 bushels to the
acre, or 7,000 bushels, than with 350
acres, yielding: 20 bushels to the acre,
or a like total crop of 7,000 bushels,
although it;is cheaper to plow, seed,
harvest and thresh the 350 acre crop
than it is the 500v acre .one, not to
spe'ak/'of the capital tied.up in the
larger acreage which, in reality, is
producing nothing. Men who are
not tilling;.the land thcy have .as it
ought to be tilled, are constantly
mortgaging their-future to buy more
land and more equipment to. work
that land.... Such men 'are no_t farmers, but land speculators. The Wes^t
needs, niorc of intensive cultivation,
that is, better farming, rather than
morc acres brought under the plow.
Prince Edward's Work
He Does His Work Well Because Pie
'X' Is a Highly Trained
���     Worker      y
On the prince's part, it is a remarkable achievement to have carried out
his mission in such a way as to create
this Strong bond of sympathy between himself and the people of the
Commonwealth. Beyond question he
has done Imperial service of tlic utmost usefulness. But wc venture ;to-
think he has greater assets than the
charm of his personality. He does
his. workSwcll because he is a highly
trained worker. From -his boyhood
he has/ been prepared, ..and. has prepared himself, for one of the .most
difficult "and responsible employments
in' existence./   '.
/ We believe that, ccmscT&usly or unconsciously, 'Australia and the other
Dominions realize this fact and the
stability that it gives to the Empire.
Since thcy have seen the Prince.its

clearly to them than ever. Thcy find
that hc is no' amateur, but. a skilful
and diligent professional worker, and
for that reason they give-him not only thc affection which ihis endearing

Make Life on The
Farm Appealing
To Meet the Difficulty in Connection
With the-Exodus of
/ Boys and Girls ^
Since the war a problem-which has
been worrying agriculturists all over
thc country, is that of keeping the
boy and girl1 611 the farm. All the
liteFature that I have seen on the
subject shows quite, plainly that' no
panacea has been discovered in connection with the exodus of the'boys
and -girls from the farms. ���I think
that lion, gentlemen will all.agree
that we can at,, least go a long way
towards solving the problem by adopting better farm methods; by making the home more attractive; by
keeping better livestock; by making
more profit on the farm, which will
make possible more comfortable conditions such as will be conducive-to
happiness and contentment; by making conditions tolerable for the farmer's, wife; and generally by doing
everything wc can to make lifc on thc
farm appealing. . In addition to this
I think that good roads and cheap
automobiles should play a very great
part iu helping to keep the 'young
people on the farms by rendering
very valuable assistance to tlic farmer in different ways in connection
with' his work and by enabling,him
and his family lo move around and
mix with the neighbors, thus obtaining some social pleasure out of lifc.���

Strength of Trees
Two Steel Cables Could Not Move
Old Elm
Few -people have any idea 'of tlic
strength of. trees. In Boston, Mass.
recently, an old'elm,.more than three
feet in" diameter,, had to be removed
from the ' common. Several of its
limbs had been struck off, by lightning, and it^"was supposed to be in
a dangerous condition. So'one of
the tree-levelling devices used in
France for tearing down buildings,
trees, etc., was brought into play.
This is a machine that is worked by
a couple-of men moving'a lever back
and forth. A cable was fastened to
thc tree trunk, and it should havc
come up by the roots, all theory being correct. ��� Instead, it broke thc
first cable of steel���one inch thick���
and then, when two were wound
around that oldv trunk, thc tree shivered a bitand broke thcm. The contractor gave it up as a bad job, and
put several men on with axes to cut
tlie roots. "" '       '

Cures Without Using Drugs
Dostors now advocate art entirely
new method for treating bronchitis
and irritable throat. Stomach dosing
is no longer necessary.
The most approved treatment consists of a healing vapor resembling
the pure air of the Adironacks.
This soothing vapor is full of germ-
���dcstroying substances, and at the
same time is a powerful healing
a"gent/ It* is sent to the bronchial
tubes and lungs through a skillfully
devised ihhaler that can be carried in
the vest pocket. Simplicity itself is
the keynote of tliis splendid treatment. '.
CATARRHOZONE is the name of
this wonderful invention that is daily
curing chronic cases of weak throatjj
bronchitis and Catarrh. Every breath
through the inhaler is laden with
soothing, healing substances that destroy all diseased-conditions in thc
breathing organs, it can't fail to cure
because it goes Avhere thc trouble
really exists, and doesn't attempt lo
cure an illness in the; head or throat
by means of medicine taken'into thc
stomach. Catarrhozone is a direct
breathable scientific cure.
There is no sufferer from a grippy
cold orany winter ill, lhat won't find
a cure in Catarrhozone, which is employed by physicians, ministers, lawyers and' public men throughout

The Peace River Country
Everything is Set For the Work of
y.y Expansion
The C.' P. R. will operate the Dun-
vegan railway for the 'next five
years. This is the essential fact in
connection with the arrangements
recently entered/into between the
McArthur Company and (the provincial government on the one .hand,
and the C.P.R. on .the other. Four
hundred and fifty miles of railway
line is directly involved. This is a
length of line practicaly equal to
that from Montreal, Que., to London,
Out., from Winnipeg-'to St. Paul, or
from St. Paul to Chicago; and 60
miles farther than from Edmonton
to Coutls on the United States boundary by way of Calgary and Lethbridge. There is room, for vast development in such a stretch of country; development which must in
large measure follow thc railway
service.     ' ���
The "coming five years means
everything to the Peace River country. Conditions have become established. Population is settled. Everything is' set for the work of expansion. With railway service assured
there is no doubt as to thc progress
of the district rand-its people. -.
While" the actual "mileage'.of-the
railway is ��� sufficient to give the enterprise a "position of first-class importance. ." At" Peace River, town the
railway- connects" with 450 miles of
navigable waterway on ' the Peace
Along the whole of this distance the
river flows through a .region of climate and'sotf-suitable- for farming
settlement. Already "people are pushing ' in, . and occupying ��� desirable
locations,-depending on the river for
present communication and expecting
that settlements and development will
ultimately-' bring railway ^facilities.
The 450"milc "stretch "of unbroken- riven navigation is only part of a "great
system of waterways extending to .the

I. David's   Righteous   and   Impartial
Reign  (8:15.)
When'he was established as king
over all Israel, he executed judgment
and justice unto all his people.. In
this_ respect he stands as a type of
the Lord Jesus Christ; for when David's greater son, the Lord Jesus,
shall reign over all Israel/righteous-
ness and justice will prevail in all the
earth. .
II. David's Inquiry for Some'of. Saul's
House to Whom he Might Show
Kindness  (9: 1-3).
This story-of faithful love to a
dead friend is' quite refreshing. David experienced great grief when he"
received the news that Jonathan had
fallen in battle. Now when he is
madc king and success lias crowned
his efforts in the subjugation of his
enemies, he sets himself to makc enquiry as to whether there is any one
left of Saul's family to whom-he
might show kindness for Jonathan's
sake. When Mephiboshcth, Jonathan's son, was found, David ordered
him to be brought to him and restored to him his.grandfather's estate
Being unable to cultivate it on account of infirmity, he arranged that
it be cultivated for him. _.Not content, with this, he ordered that Mephiboshcth should cat at his own table
as one of his sons. This example of
David's nobility teaches us that those
who are blessed and prospered should
stop to enquire whether there are not
some deserving ones whom they can
help. It may be lhat children of
some old friends who rendered us
help" in former days need care and
help. Then, too, some faithful servant of God could be cheered along
life's ws.y. This should not be simply done as an act of charityr but in
recognition of some lasting obligation in view, of help rendered by their
fathers in bygone days. This was the
case with Jonathan. He had sacrificed much.and endangered his life .for
David's sake. /
The chief value of this lesson will
be realized by making it a living story
illustrating the plan of salvation.
David's making enquiry for some onc
upon whom he can bestow kindneBss
illustrates God taking thc initiative in
providing salvation for lost and needy
souls. This is clearly suggested
in David's expression, "show the
kindness of God." Mephiboshcth did
not seek David's help or sympathy.
Quite likely hc had a fear .and dread
for him like the sinner has in many
cases for the Lord. Salvation originated with the Lord.' He did not
mztke this provision'because of man's
merit, but out of a heart of grace, 'or
thc sake of another, even Christ.   "
III. Mephiboshcth is Found.((vv. 4,
-'-     5).   .'      ���.     . X'
This larhe man was found in the
house, of Machir in. Lodebar. This
strikingly .illustrates the sinner's con-,
dition.-. The sinner is utterly'unable
to walk -uprightly before the Lord.
Mephiboshcth- was," in ��� the house- of
Machir, which mcans "sold." This is
exactly the sinner's condition ��� sold
unto sin and satan.'��� Lodebar means
"no pasture'-' This, too,-suggests the
sinner's.condition of\soul which nothing can satisfy, but-.God. . The sinner
maimed and enslaved by sin (lias, an
"aching void" -which only God.-and
his grace can satisfy."'

When   he  \vas "brought '��� into   'the
presence- of thc king, he-   reverently

Between These Houses���That is
These houses were built at the same time and cost

Seeing the good value for renting prospects, the contractor built a second house and rented it to Tom Sinclair.
Harry Duncan owns his own home; he takes pride
in it; keeps it looking fine. His monthly payments arc

prefer? Tom Sinclair has no interest in his house; he
wouldn't improve it for someone else, and now after
five years rent collecting thc contractor is selling the
house. Tom Sinclair must move, altlTough he has paid
enough in rent to buy thc house. ���

Must Eat More Oats
. Scotsmen iu  Canada are falling
away- from   the   habits   of   their
ancestors who came from  the land
of oatcakes and porridge, bufe if the
prediction of   Louis   Hill, of the
Great    Northern     railway     that
wheat  will  be   gelling   for   $5   a
bushel before the harvest of 1921 is:
realized,:;there may be a general
return to oatmeal diet..... Not only
���will" the Soot-.take-.'to ..-'it,  bat the
southener, Who,"\ when, first he ex--
plored the   lands ...north   of;-the
Tweed, regared; .with, wonder and
���- scorn the Caledonian..fondness for
. "horse feed,!'���;will find, that oat-
��� meal has. unsuspected merits.
���-. Porridge has made; its way.into
. international favor together with
golf   and; sundry /other: Scottish
pecularities.  - The   oatcake!'���������' now:
knocks at the door.   Housewives
and bakers should, investigate its
claims.    There is no more heajth-
,.ful givibg-food.'thah oatmeal in the
, form of cakes,   Instead of tea and
* toast,  tea and oatcakes may become.the correct thing in tearooms
XZ and in households- when $5 wheat
.  gives another serious upturn, to the
cost of living. ^-Toronto Globe*
